"you can always use snaps too - to add things to a corset even over the busk - look at my photos - the "Steampunk Wonder Woman" I created came from a plain red CS-411 from Orchard Corset - I stitched some basic gold trimming along the…"

Trying to make normal corset look steampunk-ish

So, i'v been going around a few shops trying to find steam punk type stuff and so far have only got a belt.I bought a black corset today and am hoping to add things too it to make it look more steam punkish.I'm thinking maybe add a few chains and buy a broach online to put on it, but i'm not very creating, so does anyone have any ideas?I don't currently have a photo of it, but it is just plain black with flowers at the top (Which I am going to try and take off).See More
